No, I do not have Crypt::SSLeay installed - that never occurred to me. I am on Windows and I'm using ActiveState, so thanks for the Openssl comment, too.

I'm starting to think I misinterpreted the error message. Thanks for an excellent suggestion!

I'll update this node as soon as I try it.

Update: I just got Openssl installed. I tried using PPM to install Crypt::SSLeay, but when I first installed perl I foolishly installed it in 'Program Files' and the Crypt::SSLeay installation choked on the space.

Update: Intrepid brought to my attention the reloc_perl utility (included in ActiveState perl), which will relocate a perl installation to a new directory. I moved the installation out of the 'Program Files' directory and installed Crypt::SSLeay. However, I'm still getting an error when I try to submit the form:

Unexpected field value http://preview.pharmgkb.org/views/index.jsp at +(eval 5) line 1
I'm baffled.

Update: I tracked this error down. Please see the thread "Unexpected field value" error with WWW::Mechanize for more information.

    Aha.

    Well, I remember having trouble installing openssl as well, it was kind of confusing since there seems to be more than one distribution for windows. I finally got it working installing from ShiningLight Openssl.

    After installing that, check out

    http://aspn.activestate.com/ASPN/Downloads/ActivePerl/PPM/Repository

    And follow the tips there to do.....

    ppm install http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppmpackages/Crypt-SSLeay.ppd

    Gotta use uwinnipeg, since this isn't included in the standard activestate repositories, for reasons that probably have to do with exporting encryption or something, but I'm not sure.

    I think I tried making it myself with nmake, as well, and no dice. In the end it only worked with the above ppm install.
